About Brian

Hello! I am an independent producer, editor, and video journalist living in Berlin, Germany, originally from the US. My work ranges from music videos to corporate documentaries to short fiction films, although I've always had a passion for free-form documentary film that seeks to raise social awareness. My film credits include post-production editing and office work on the Oscar-nominated film Trouble the Water, Michael Moore's most recent film Capitalism: A Love Story, and the upcoming Morgan Spurlock-produced documentary, Dancing in Jaffa. I have always devoted a significant amount of time to the discoveries of travel, various cultures, and the human spirit, and hope to convey this understanding and emotions in my film work and everyday life. I graduated from Wesleyan with a BA in film in 2010 and now reside in Berlin, Germany, continuing to make creative and fun work.

    Brian was exceptional to work with. He was fast at sending the deliverables, had great communication with the team, and was helpful in coordinating the shoots while the team worked remotely on this project. I would highly recommend Brian again for any project.

    Brian was very responsive and flexible to some scheduling changes. I can tell he takes his work seriously and will not settle for anything that is not up to his standards. We're looking forward to this piece and Brian's colorful framing.
